ExcelCare utilizes nationally published criteria to review severity of illness and intensity of service in determining medical length of stay necessity. Lengths of stay are assigned using Truven Health Analytics.
Each case is reviewed individually, taking into consideration the patient's medical condition to ensure individual needs are met. As a result of this careful review, ExcelCare's managed population have average lengths of hospital stay which are lower than area averages.
